It’s here…it’s finally here! I am so excited and overwhelmed and thrilled and nervous all at once as I release my first eBook to you. You may or may not know that it has been a long dream of mine to share my writing, thoughts and creativity in a book. Well, it has finally come to fruition right now, for the holiday season with this new Christmas Music Study.
It’s no secret, in my house Christmas music can pop up at any time of the year. Sometimes you just need a bright, cheery pick-me-up and Christmas songs are filled with hope and joy. I also enjoy listening to different styles of the same song. Warning: Nerd moment – I find it fun to compare and contrast the different instruments, rhythms/tempos, styles and vocals. It’s like a party in my head…all the time. Feel free to join in!
As I mentioned this to my husband a few weeks back, the idea finally struck me – make a Christmas music study using different styles. YES! I was so excited that I got to work immediately. So for the past few weeks my house has already been filled with Christmas music, cheer and joy. I am ready to deck the halls, but my husband says no. So I’m patiently waiting until the day after Thanksgiving – then it’s going up.
Meanwhile, I hope you all will find this music study a fun one. The study includes 10 classic Christmas songs and carols that will not only get you in the holiday spirit, but be fun and enjoyable to dissect at the same time. Each song includes a brief history and links to a variety of styles as well as a Venn Diagram for each song. There are also a number of notebooking pages for songs, composers and blank ones to use as you need.
Songs included in this study:
- Angels We Have Heard on High
- Carol of the Bells
- The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
- The Little Drummer Boy
- Mary, Did You Know?
- Go Tell it on the Mountain
- O Holy Night
- We Three Kings
- White Christmas
